This new cushion collection was inspired by my 'Seeing within my 5km' series of paintings I created in 2021. I am lucky to live close enough to the farm I grew up on. So during lockdown It was lovely to bring the kids for walks on the land I grew up on. It brought back many very happy childhood memories of life in rural Ireland.
We had a regular visitor during lockdown. Patsy was our wonder fox. We 'wondered' a lot about him. He appeared every day for a few weeks in our back yard. He would come up quite close to the back door and just stare in at us. So I managed to get this close up shot. He had this dead stare. The kids would wonder what he wanted. "I wonder what his name is? I wonder is he hungry? I wonder is his mammy looking for him? I wonder can he see glass? I wonder can he blink? I wonder what he is thinking?" We wondered a lot about him and couldn't really answer any of those questions. So we just called him 'Patsy The Wonder Fox'. He eventually disappeared and to this day we still 'wonder' about him.
This cushion is made in Ireland on a lush soft velvet fabric using eco-friendly inks. Dimensions 50cm. Each cushion has my branded label on the side. Patsy is on one side and the reverse is a plain navy velvet to suit the design. This one would make a perfect gift for anyone that has a love for foxes and the countryside.
